Hibs have it easy over Motherwell

Published Add your comment

Two penalties from Leigh Griffiths helped send Hibernian into second place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League as they prevailed in a typically eventful trip to Fir Park.

Motherwell striker Michael Higdon missed from the spot in between the second-half double after David Wotherspoon's impressive long-range strike had put the visitors in front.

Danny Handling completed the rout but Motherwell will still feel aggrieved at the performance of referee Stevie O'Reilly, who did not finish the game. O'Reilly and assistant Francis Andrews failed to spot Stevie Hammell's header bouncing clearly over the line before Hibernian goalkeeper Ben Williams scooped it out of his goal.
